The Keto Kamp Podcast With Ben Azadi

Apr 20, 2020

I am grateful to have, a physician specializing in internal medicine, endocrinology, and hospice care, Dr. Zach Bush. He is an internationally recognized educator on the microbiome as it relates to health, disease, and food production systems.

Dr. Bush founded Seraphic Group to develop root-cause solutions for human and ecological health and extend his passion for educating the world on topics such as the state of our soil – including the need to eradicate toxins such as glyphosate from our farming chain – and the importance of gut/brain communication as a vital part of our overall health/wellbeing.

Dr. Bush is a respected speaker and authority in the health and wellness space. He travels the world speaking to medical and farming communities as well as consumers who are interested in taking proactive control of their health.

In this episode, Dr. Bush shares his story and how he went from conventional medicine to what he's doing today. Dr. Bush explains what happens internally when we eat a standard American diet. It can take 14 hours for pizza to get through our small intestines. If you're eating three meals a day, your body will be stressed, and your organs will be working overtime. Also, Dr. Bush gives his thoughts on public health during quarantine and later speaks about a patient who would have panic attacks right after lunch. Stay tuned, as Dr. Bush describes how diseases are connected with mother nature.

[00:20] About Dr. Bush

  • Bush sees how the healthcare system is broken; there is a lack of resources. Hospitals should never manage chronic diseases.
  • Bush realized that he needed to go down a path that would make a difference with heart disease. This led him down the road of endocrinology.
  • During his cancer research, Dr. Bush understood that he needed to learn nutrition because he didn’t get any formal nutrition education.
  • Bush eventually started a nutrition center to reverse heart disease. He decided he would save rural Virginia. If he can figure out how to fix the small rural towns, then he would be able to scale it for the whole world.
  • During his journey, Dr. Bush started to study soil. He realized that food is an essential connection for gut/brain communication.

[11:30] What Happens When We Don’t Fast

  • Gut motility starts to freeze up with age.
  • At 18 years old, people who ate two slices of pizza, it took 14 hours to get through the small intestine alone.
  • If you’re eating three meals a day, it stresses the body and destroys the gut motility. It will set up chronic disease. When you get stressed in the liver, you develop fatty liver very quickly.
  • With a plant-based diet, it only took ninety minutes for the food to move through the small intestine.
  • Protein has nothing to do with ketosis. Too much protein can actually disrupt ketosis.
  • If you’re eating real and unprocessed foods – the mix is magical for the small intestine.

[18:20] Public Health During Quarantine

  • The last thing you want to do for human beings is isolating them.
  • As soon as you stop moving, your sleep cycle will shut down.
  • Americans are already overdosing on couch time and screen time.
  • What have we done wrong to create a pandemic? It’s the food system.
  • Our food system has destroyed the integrity of our planet.

[23:45] Having Panic Attacks After Lunch

  • One of Dr. Bush’s patients would have massive panic attacks after lunch.
  • The symptom of a panic attack is the overwhelming feeling of impending doom.
  • For lunch, she ate rice or chicken salad. She realized she only had panic attacks when she ate the chicken salad.
  • It turns out, the chicken had a lot of stress, and it was transferring that to the human. The chicken also was experiencing an impending sense of doom before it was killed. The human starts triggering the same sense of impending doom.
  • Corn is a beautiful plant. However, there is no biodiversity on the ground. All they allow is GMO corn. It is the factory chicken farm version of corn. Biodiversity creates more diverse returns. Corn would be better with biodiversity around it. Even weeds are beneficial to the soil. If you destroy the weed, then you destroy the biodiversity.

[48:55] Disease is Linked to Mother Nature   

  • We are creating monocrops that create monocultures in the gut.
  • We are starting to become allergic to the food we are feeding ourselves.
  • We need to teach our farmers how to farm the right way. That way, we can give the body what it wants and reverse the trends.
  • The gut is an organic garden. The same rules and recovery rate that we see on a farm will happen in the gut.


[51:40] Finding Yourself With Your Gut

  • When your gut is healthy, you will start to have a healthy life.
  • Finding yourself will include fixing your microbiome.
  • Check out Farmer’s Footprint.
  • With Farmer’s Footprint, Dr. Bush seeks to expose the science behind glyphosate’s impact on human and environmental health through the lens of human stories.
  • He wants to illuminate the health and economic impacts on farmers and our communities and supported by the medical finding of their team of researchers.
